If you’re considering hormone replacement therapy (HRT), it’s vital to understand that while there are many benefits, there also exists certain risks, including an increased risk of developing cardiovascular problems and heart disease.
HRT may reduce your occurences of hot flashes, night sweats and vaginal issues, such as dryness, itching and burning, and discomfort during intercourse. But the risks of HRT can include heart disease, stroke, breast cancer and the formation of blood clots.
Know the risks before you commit to hormone replacement therapy and understand your options.
There are four key hormones that influence weight loss. If theses four hormones are out of balance, they will interfere with your weight loss goals. By learning how to keep them balanced, you’ll be better able to reach and maintain the healthy weight you desire.
Adiponectin tells your body to burn fat. Ghrelin makes you feel hunger. Insulin imbalance can lead to excess sugar in your body. Cortisol gives you the drive for your fight or flight response, but excess cortisol causes increased desire for sweets and carbs.
Did you know that the flora in your gut has a direct impact on your hormonal balance?
What happens inside your gut has an effect on virtually every system of your body, and your hormonal balance is no exception. If your gut is full of bad gut bugs and is lacking a healthy gut bug diversity, your hormones can become imbalanced.
If you can encourage the growth of a healthy gut biome by eating the right diet, your hormones and the rest of your systems may begin to feel the positive effects. It’s simply a matter of learning what good gut foods you should eat on a regular basis.
